Nachhaltiger Brandschutz mit Kompetenz und Verantwortung für eine sichere grüne Zukunft.
One of the essential pillars of our environmentally conscious green philosophy is formed by environmentally compatible or at least environmentally friendly extinguishing agents that allow for easy and ecologically sound disposal.
The "Green Generation" fire extinguisher series was created under this important guiding principle. We are continuously developing and expanding this range, enabling our customers to choose from a variety of environmentally friendly alternative extinguishing agents for firefighting.
Powerful and environmentally friendly - our specially developed extinguishing agents. Jockel foam, water, water mist and gel fire extinguishers from the Green Generation series are free of added fluorosurfactants and solvents. Furthermore, they do not contain any PBT substances - i.e. substances that are persistent, bioaccumulative or toxic.
With fire extinguishers from the Green Generation series, you can extinguish in an environmentally friendly and effective way and at the same time make an important contribution to sustainability in fire protection.
Jockel foam fire extinguishers from the Green Generation series, without added fluorosurfactants and solvents, can be used for incipient fires of fire class A of ember-forming substances, but also for incipient fires of fire class B.
Since foam can be removed later with virtually no residue, it is ideal for living areas, sales spaces or administrative areas. This makes it suitable for a wide range of applications while having a low impact on the environment.
Due to their low specific density, water film-forming foam agents are able to form a closed vapour-tight and aqueous film on the surface of the burning material, even in the case of burning liquids. This barrier layer prevents the escape of vapours and gases. In this way, the oxygen supply to the burning material is cut off and the fire is smothered. In addition, foam has a cooling effect due to its water content.
These water extinguishers are used to fight fires of solid, ember-forming substances, i.e. they are the ideal solution for incipient fires of fire class A.
Water is considered to be the oldest extinguishing agent known to mankind. Its extinguishing effect is based on cooling. In this process, the thermal reaction conditions are hindered so that the further transformation of flammable substances and the supply of combustible gases and vapours is prevented.Nowadays, its effectiveness is considerably increased by means of extinguishing additives and the formation of bacteria and algae is prevented.An extinguisher with 6 litres of extinguishing agent naturally weighs quite a bit. The larger the unit, the more important it is to have a comfortable carrying handle. At Jockel, you can choose between the universal round handle and the classic handle. By the way, to make the extinguisher as light as possible, we have also paid attention to the weight of each individual part.
Water is the most environmentally friendly extinguishing agent in firefighting.Jockel water mist extinguishers take the extinguishing effectiveness of the environmentally friendly extinguishing agent water to a new level.
Jockel water mist extinguishers are suitable for fire classes A (embers and solids) and F (cooking fat/oil).
In addition, the water mist extinguishers have been successfully tested in fire class B (liquid substances and substances that become liquid). Due to this extinguishing performance, the environmentally friendly water mist extinguishers can be optimally used depending on the area of application.We have succeeded in increasing the extinguishing effectiveness of water through the innovative patented nebulisation technology. Due to the perfectly coordinated combination and the interaction of nozzle and pressure, water gains maximum efficiency.
The special water mist nozzle atomises the finest water droplets (Ø 55 μm) into a fine mist, which greatly increases the surface area of the extinguishing agent. This reduction of the droplet size increases the total water surface so that it can extract the heat from the source of the fire much faster.
Sprayed on as a water mist, the fine drops evaporate abruptly in the event of a fire. In the process, the oxygen that is absolutely necessary for the fire to continue burning is displaced over a large area from the ambient air. The fire is suffocated.
Thanks to the exorbitant number of tiny water particles, the water mist expands over a large surface and reduces the temperature considerably - an enormous amount of heat energy (approx. 3.36 MJ per litre at 20°C) is extracted from the fire. By sealing off the heat radiation, a possible spread of fire is also prevented.
Gel is an effective extinguishing agent that has a fast, preventive and cooling effect.The specially developed gel extinguishing agent is particularly suitable for problem fires in lithium-ion batteries as it practically permanently wraps itself around the entire battery (or the burnt material) and remains adherent even on horizontal, vertical, slippery as well as smooth surfaces.
In addition, the gel layer on the fire material provides an oxygen seal - this lasting cooling and smothering of the flames causes a rapid reduction of the fire ambient temperature.
As gel binds the water in the extinguishing agent, no sudden evaporation occurs during application. Hot and toxic fire gases are knocked down and soot particles are bound. Due to the preventive effect, valuable time can also be gained by coating the surrounding fire load that is not yet burning with gel - this prevents it from spreading in the event of a fire.
Due to its thermal nature (heat absorption), gel can transfer its cooling effect to the battery over a long period of time and significantly reduce its temperature - and that with little use of extinguishing agent - which also unmistakably reduces the damage of extinguishing agent retention.When using gel, not only can the spread or direct spread of flames to surrounding property be better prevented in the event of a fire, especially when storing, temporarily storing or transporting lithium-ion batteries, but above all it can protect people.Gel extinguishers offer an effective solution especially for industries in which lithium-ion batteries are used, but are also ideally suited for many other areas.
Economical use of paper, energy-conscious production and reduced use of packaging materials are something we consider a given. We also try to apply these standards to our products. In addition to fire protection requirements for greater extinguishing performance, environmental compatibility and disposal are also central focal points of the 21st century.
